Loughborough Sports Scholarships

We aim to provide our sports scholars with first class coaching, sports science and sports medicine support, access to extensive indoor and outdoor training and competition facilities, a life skills programme, a high level of support and an annual cash award.

Our elite sports scholarships offer exceptional students targeting the 2012 Olympics or the 2014 Commonwealth Games all of the above along with a contribution of up to £3,000 towards tuition fees, facility membership (where applicable) and free parking on campus.

The Music Centre offers subsidised music tuition in a range of instruments or for voice selected via open auditions. Those selected receive thirty minutes tuition per week for twenty weeks. The cost of this would be £250, but via the scheme, students only pay a £50 registration fee.

These are awards of £500 and the scholars are expected to give a recital in the Spring. For further information contact a.beavis-harrison@lboro.ac.uk or telephone +44 (0)1509 222960
